Jordan Bone: Leads Vols to SEC Tournament Final

Razorbacks Fall To Tennessee in SEC Semifinals 84-66

In the immediate aftermath of today's Kentucky victory over Tennessee in the SEC Tournament Championship, Megan had a message for any Wildcat fans who wrote this team off earlier in the year when it was struggling. Take note of Daylight Savings as well.

Perhaps they will face Kentucky two or three more times. They took down Alabama 88-63 in the semifinals with Wenynen Gabriel nailing a flawless 7 of 7 from beyond the arc.

Kentucky: The championship game appearance was the fifth straight for the Wildcats and their eighth in nine seasons under coach John Calipari.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander paced the Wildcats with 29 points and scored 15 of those in the second half. Tennessee won that game, 94-61.

"We came out the first half and arguably played the best basketball we've played all year", Barnes said after his team eliminated Arkansas.

Tennessee has been the most trustworthy team in the SEC all season, and that's why I felt good about its chances to make a run to the title game. The Cats have won the last three conference championships and have won their last 11 SEC Tournament games.

"That's a whole new deal", Tennessee's Grant Williams said.

Tennessee found out on Sunday just hours after losing to Kentucky in the SEC Tournament Finals that they will be a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will be playing in Dallas, TX for their first game in the South region. "We just have a standard we're trying to play towards". Wenyen Gabriel knocked down seven 3-pointers and led the Wildcats with 23 points in the win over the Crimson Tide Saturday.

Down two points, Xavian Stapleton missed a 3-point shot in the closing seconds as the Bulldogs fell 62-59 to the co-regular season champion Volunteers at the Scottrade Center. Tennessee got a stop on the other end and got the ball inside to Williams.

However, a sensational 29-point performance by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the tournament MVP, was too much for the Vols to beat United Kingdom for a third time this season.

"They ended up shooting 35 percent, but the rebounding was the difference for us", said Tennessee's Rick Barnes, "I don't think we've outrebounded someone like that all year".

"We go out to play to win the game", Admiral Schofield said.

There's always next year when another group of 5-stars recruits rolls into Lexington. Admiral Schofield caught fire to end the half, scoring the last 13 points for the Volunteers.

NCAA Tournament pairings come out later tonight and suddenly United Kingdom, which is likely to be a No. 5 seed, looks like a tough out for any team in the tournament whether it has Jarred Vanderbilt back or not. The junior forward has 13 points after drilling a 3-pointer and cutting Kentucky's lead to single digits.
